This blog is dedicated to the other great financial resources on the web that can also help get you on the road to understanding your finances.
Here are five of our favorites and why we like them:
1. Fool.com – The website of The Motley Fool, a financial services company founded in 1993 by brothers David and Tom Gardner. The information on this site is extensive and comprehensive and, most importantly, easy to understand. The Motley Fool talks about investing in a way that even non-investors can grasp.
2. FTC.gov – The Federal Trade Commission’s website is a wealth of information and one of our favorite credit resources for finding a wide range of information in one spot. You’ll find news and advice on a wide variety of topics, including credit repair, investing, borrowing and even shopping. You can file a complaint or search an online database of FTC actions.
3. FPAnet.org – The largest organization for personal financial advisors, the Financial Planning Association offers plenty of personal financial advice on its website. On its tools and resources tab, you’ll find everything from a Social Security predictor and handy “tip of the week” to a link for RSS feeds. You can also use the site’s search to find an FPA-certified financial planner in your area.
4. Kiplinger.com – The Kiplinger’s name has been associated with personal finance for nearly as long as there’s been money! The online version of the popular print publication gathers together information on a variety of personal finance topics, from credit resources to employment advice.
5. Reuters.com – One of the oldest, most reputable news organizations in the world, Reuters’ website is a great resource for up-to-date financial news. You’ll also find analysis and opinion that can help you shape your own views of how financial trends and events may affect your own life.
All the financial resources on the Internet have made it easy to find current information and expert advice. It’s up to you to find – and use – the information you need to take control of your credit and your financial well-being.
